Owls Guru

Owls Guru is a must-have app because owls. While in line for Starbucks, you can peruse beautiful owl photos and read about the different kinds of owls. You can also keep yourself busy while in the bathroom with a fun puzzle game (about owls).

Spin O Wrist

Relying on a real spinning bottle to let you know who makes out with whom can be real tricky. The floor could be uneven, a person could nudge the bottle in their favor… there are a lot of deeply non-digital problems.

Watch Tag

Why play a conventional game of tag with the hoi polloi when you can play Watch Tag with the Apple Watch elite? To play, you are required to keep your Apple Watch hand on your hip during the entire duration of the game. You then have to tap the Apple Watch of other players to diminish their points. Players with zero points are out of the game, and the last player standing is hailed the winner. Fun!
